Char-Broil Performance Grill Review

what’s up y’all I am going to give you
my little two cents on the Charbroil
performance for burner with a side
burner grill base comes gonna take you
through my process to let you know how
it performs there’s been a lot in the
news about these steel brushes when
you’re cleaning your grill and so I
chose to move to a nylon grill or grill
brush cleaner or whatever
it’s nylon so you’re not gonna want to
do this when it’s hot
it’s got to be cool to the touch so with
my process I’ve had to switch things up
a little bit so use the wire brush but
apparently those little bristles can get
inside your body and cause a whole bunch
of pain so let’s go for a safer route
when I pull it out and get ready to
start grilling I go ahead and scrape it
down now you see all these little black
particles here that’s because when I was
done cooking last night I fired it up
max heat and let all that stuff burn and
get crispy so that when I come to start
to grow then I can scrape it down I do
have a few spots right here that I’m
gonna have to do a little bit something
more intense but maybe the next time I
fire it up that will get burned out and
burn off too if your grill had a lot of
use on it you could get some cleaner
spray on the grates and clean the grates
but I’m gonna do that next time
alright so we got the lid open make sure
all these bad boys are off go down here
turn on your gas do it slowly because if
you do it too quickly you could activate
a safety feature that will make your
grill not heat above like I don’t know
250 degrees something like that no
you’re gonna find out which one is your
ignition burner on this one it happens
to be the second from the left is the
ignition burner now I’ve found that it
works no matter which one you start with
but whatever they designed it to work a
certain way so we should do it that way
so push in a little bit turn it to the
ignites
and then just hit your button once and
boom she fires right up okay
so now at this point I’m just gonna
crank it max heat max heat max heat
let’s get this bad boy up to temperature
it’s about maybe eighty degrees right
now just had a fresh storm so there’s a
cool breeze going so this would be a
really good test to see a good max temp
in decent temperatures not like 98
degrees ambient temperature so we’ll
check back with you we’re back here with
our review of the char-broil performance
grill we’re back up to temperature about
475 there again it’s about 80 degrees
cool breeze going through we want to be
quick about this when we lift the lid
cause we do lose some heat but as we
talked about before the front part is
the hot part and that’s where we’re
gonna put this delicious 80/20 ground
chuck here we go we’re also
experimenting with some frozen corn
there so we’re going to quickly get this
bad boy on there and the hot part of the
grill and then shut it forget about it
forget about it don’t even think about
it
don’t even try moving it right now you
got to give it time to get some of that
char on the bottom and then we’ll be
back in a second I can see we got some
smoke going can you see the smoke that’s
okay don’t be alarmed it’s supposed to
smoke now I just had enough time to go
inside wash my hands and now we want to
flip it now look at that look at those
grill marks that’s the stuff you want
close it down
we’ll get grill marks on the other side
and as you notice actually I could have
left this down a little bit longer we
got a little raw spot right there in the
middle but we can fix that later all
right and it’ll probably just turn out
in the mix anyway so another couple
minutes on that side and this burger
we’ll be good to go a little
longer if you want it to be no pink on
the inside and I’ll try and get it to
that point for you hang with me
okay let’s talk for a little bit about
flare-ups so we got this nice 80/20
ground chuck burger on there and that
grease is popping down and lighting up
and getting a little bit too hot and
turning it down
just turn your grill down turn the
flames down because what you don’t want
to do is you don’t want to open up the
lid and let all of your Heat out so we
just turned it down
Pat your control a little bit still got
a little bit of a flame but it’s not as
much and Plus this burgers almost done
nothing wrong with using a little bit of
heat to cook your food you’re gonna get
flare-ups that’s what gives it that that
extra flavor
so just don’t want to get too much fire
on there so now even with the heat turn
all the way down we’re still getting use
them on the flame but we are at a point
we can now move this to a cooler part of
the grill and let it finish cooking we
need to flip it over again it’s gonna
cook just fine back there until it gets
good and right okay we’ll look at the
bottom make sure we’re not too burned
over there we’re good we’ll let that get
good and right we’re gonna rotate our
our corn a little bit
yeah I don’t think this is gonna turn
out so great this is frozen corn and I
just wanted to see what would happen if
I put it on the grill so if you have any
suggestions for I don’t think I’ll ever
try a frozen corn again on the grill but
we’ll be back to make sure this bad boy
gets some see how there’s still some
some juices falling out of the middle
there matter of fact let me flip it over
and just let that side finish so there
you go it’ll set it go for this burger
to get finished here we’re gonna take a
bun that we sliced and I like to get
ones that are not sliced because they
seem to be fresher more moist so put a
little butter on there slap it on the
grill you can’t have a real cookout
without a toasted bun don’t let anybody
tell you anything different
I’ll be back we got our bun here
perfectly toasted bun look at that and
we got our burger with some nice perfect
grill marks on it and we’re gonna just
see how the juices are flowing clear so
we should be pretty good all the way
through if anything maybe a thin strip
of pink but this should be good for any
person who says they want their burger
well-done
or cooked so to speak well slide that on
there and we’re gonna let that sit for a
minute we need to let this thing rest so
just like a steak or anything else
you’re gonna want to let your meat rest
for just a few minutes so that it just
tastes better that way let’s just put it
that way
let’s talk a little bit about what we
just did while we’re letting this thing
settled here before we cut into it I was
initially frustrated with the fact that
all the heat was up here in the front
until I read something somewhere that
said they designed it so that the front
part is you’re searing station when you
want to get a good char good it’s a
quick sear get the close early get the
thing going max temp pop your stuff on
and then close the lid right away close
your lid people my opinion this is just
my opinion these things were not
designed to be cooked with the lid open
like you see on TV or whatever you know
like maybe you like you used to do with
your charcoal grill like that’s a whole
different type of cook in there you got
to hold the heat in these things
otherwise if you hold it open I mean
it’s really not going to do you any good
you’re just gonna be sat and
disappointed at your raw burgers look at
how I mean this took about I’d say maybe
10 10 minutes altogether of actual
cooking so you just gotta get your grill
really hot use your use this transfer
bar to get your heat and go from there
move things to the back as I start to
get done and rotate things now that
we’re done we’re gonna go ahead and pull
these sad-looking
corn on the cobs off that’s an official
waste of money they’re also something
about these these grill grates while I’m
doing this these are porcelain coated
cast iron so there are certain types of
surfaces that you need to season like
straight-up cast iron with no quick
coating
you got a season it and there’s a whole
routine but these porcelain coated ones
no seasoning required just don’t use
like really harsh like scrapey type
things or be careful with your with your
metal utensils because this can chip the
coating we’re gonna now know where the
grill is dirty now see the dirt and all
the so you can see the sticky mess
sticky mess what we’re gonna do is we’re
gonna fire this puppy up we’re gonna go
all the way we’re going all in bang bang
bang bang
and then we’re gonna close the lid and
let this puppy get up to temperature and
then we’re gonna that’s gonna burn off
all that stuff so the next time we go to
cook we’ll do the same thing we did when
we started this video with the scrape
and then go from there
okay last step here so we fired up to
max heat to try and clean the grill off
by heating up all that junk and so you
can see now it’s turned into just
basically char ash if you will so once
this cools down and turn it off once it
cools down I’ll go back with the nylon
brush scrape all that ash off and we’ll
be good to go for the next go-round so
hope this has been beneficial and you
know what let’s take a peek inside this
burger and see what we got oh boy how am
I gonna do this
so do you see any pink in there let’s
get it focused no pink and it is juicy
see that is good to go
alright hope you enjoy
